Climate McCarthyism Claims Yet Another Victim (+video)

Photo Credit: Breitbart Climate McCarthyism has claimed another victim. Dr Caleb Rossiter – an adjunct professor at American University, Washington DC – has been fired by a progressive think tank after publicly expressing doubt about man-made global warming.

Rossiter, a former Democratic congressional candidate, has impeccably liberal credentials. As the founder of Demilitarization for Democracy he has campaigned against US backed wars in Central America and Southern Africa, against US military support for dictators and against anti-personnel landmines. But none of this was enough to spare him the wrath of the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) when he wrote an OpEd in the Wall Street Journal describing man-made global warming as an “unproved science.”

Two days later, he was sacked by email. The IPS said: “We would like to inform you that we are terminating your position as an Associate Fellow of the Institute for Policy Studies…Unfortunately, we now feel that your views on key issues, including climate science, climate justice, and many aspects of US policy to Africa, diverge so significantly from ours.”

    Peer Reviewers should be honest not politically swayed, its a joke that humans created a problem that changes the temperatures and weather patterns of this planet!

    I’ve been doing some thinking about the Liberals and ‘Global Warming’. I’m not a climatologist, but a rather, a physics guy. In the 1970’s, we were regaled with a Global Cooling scare. Then, it was Global Warming, and now anther morph to “Climate Change”.

    The problem and its perception is complex…one of trust, consistency, and government interference. To be sure, there is some evidence to support the idea of “Climate Change”. There is also evidence that there is NO UNNATURAL change. We all understand that weather and climate are not the same thing. One winter is a short interlude. Climate is the ‘Long Haul’. The theory that Carbon Dioxide can cause a greenhouse effect has merit, but no one has convincing proof that they know how much is too much.. Venus seems a proof that enough C02 can cause too much warming. Venus and the Earth are too different to draw any conclusions regarding our situation without further RATIONAL study. If someone has the data, they could try presenting it to Americans in a RATIONAL way. Getting professors to threaten Americans with death if they don’t agree IS NOT RATIONAL Use Joe McCarthy tactics against naysayers is not RATIONAL.

    We have a serious problem of trust. Some scientists have been caught red handed fudging some of the data to support their pro ‘CHANGE’ position. Politicians have made Climate Change a political football and the most powerful of them have decided that they must DICTATE to you and me what we must do to fix the problem. I know the American people. Whenever you try to give them a ’Snow Job’, they instinctively know it. They resent being told what to think and being ordered around. The resent it when the government opens Crony Businesses to combat Climate Change. If, and I emphasize IF, Climate Change is real, then the government must change it’s tactics if anything RATIONAL is to be done. Carbon Tax? No. That does nothing but make Al Gore and friends even more wealthy and is just another way for the government to control Americans. A Carbon Tax will damage the economy to the point that no one would have the money to do anything about Climate Change…assuming it’s real.

    Government is plodding along on the false assumption that it is the solution to big problems. It was NOT the government that won WWII, it was American spirit and teamwork. Government never solves problems, but it can be an ENABLER or a ROAD BLOCK. If Climate Change is real, then the government and the halls of science should calmly set about convincing Americans that it is. REAL things are easy. BOOGEY MEN are for the simple minded and children. Once Americans are convinced, the government should get the heck out of the way and let Americans get on with solving the problem. Nothing on this planet can stop American ingenuity and willingness to solve a critical problem, but it is imperative that the government GET OUT OF THE WAY. Liberals, convince Mr. Obama and Al Gore to change their tactics. If Climate Change is real, time is wasting. If it turns out to be wrong or even a HOAX, shut up about it. We all must look at the data with a jaundiced eye and accept the truth, whatever it is. In the interim, the Liberal McCarthy machine needs to try being RATIONAL. I know that’s a foreign concept, but it’s the way humans were intended to behave.

      God controls the weather . This is just a scam to pad the pockets of people like al the tree hugging gore.


        Your statement is certainly well supported by the evidence, LINDA.

    kill the socialist liberal. HIS carbon footprint is the biggest. Work your way down. Do the same with criminals with large “rap” sheets, work your way down. A civil society is waiting to breathe (free) again.
